Created with cat happiness in mind
Cardboard Cat Homes was created one day when Evan approached Melanie with an observation: whenever Evan buys toys or goodies for his cat, they always seem to prefer the cardboard box the toys came in rather than the toys themselves. Melanie and Evan asked themselves, "why not give cats what they really want, but make them cute enough to satisfy the humans?" Thus, Cardboard Cat Homes was born.
Here at Cardboard Cat Homes our mission is simple - create adorable and cozy products that are loved by humans and kitties alike. Cats love our cardboard homes because of the many properties of cardboard that make it so cozy for cats, such as the tree bark-like texture that makes it super appealing to sink claws into (so they don't have to do it into your expensive furniture). Humans love our products because they're super reasonably priced, adorable enough to not cause an eyesore in your home, and most importantly - because your feline friends love them! 🐈
On top of thinking of our furry felines that already have their furever homes, we also have the luxury of being able to help those cats in need that are still looking for a furever home of their own. To give back to our feline community we work closely with shelters, aiming to donate supplies and goodies to at least one shelter for every five orders we receive. ❤️

Hi, I'm Melanie!
Melanie, on top of being CEO and co-founder of CardboardCatHomes.com since May 2021, is also a passionate cat lover. Although she never had her own cat growing up (against her own wishes), she spent as much time as possible with the cats in her life - taking care of her friends’ and family’s furry felines while their parents were away and even volunteering at a local animal shelter to feed and socialize the many cats that came through on their journey to their forever homes. Her desire to give back to the cat loving community and an idea brought to her by her fellow co-founder, Evan, led to the birth of CardboardCatHomes.com - an ecological, economical, and adorable way to give cats everywhere the relaxing environment they really want and deserve.

Hi, I'm Evan!
Evan is an avid cat lover. He grew up with four outdoor cats who loved to hunt and bring Evan some unwanted mice and birds.
As an adult, Evan and his wife rescued two black cats, Chalupa and Olympia. He probably dotes on them a little too much but they deserve it.
After seeing the conditions of the shelters his felines came from, Evan wanted to make a bigger impact on cats outside of his own home.
